It looks like I missed some interesting weather while I was in Sweden! Many thanks to Chris Fast for wading through two feet of snow to open up the cabin, putting out a list, collecting the results, and sending them to me. Here is his report on conditions:
2 feet of fresh snow got groomed in the morning. The track was very bumpy and rutted. Poles with powder baskets were the gear of choice tonight, because the poles kept punching through. The first time classic would have been considerably faster than skating!
I'll try to track down the results for the other week I missed; if anyone picked them up, please let me know.
Next week: end of season relay and party! Details to come.
